Here’s why you should consider Western Australia

It’s the year of the far-cation, and almost no place is farther from the U.S. than Western Australia.

Perth, Western Australia’s capital, is halfway around the world from the East Coast. To get there from Washington, D.C., you’ll spend a day on a plane and endure a mind-bending 13-hour time difference.

It’s not easily accessible, but it’s perfect for visitors like Darren Butts, who plans to fly to Australia’s largest state in May with his wife, Pamela. They’ve been to Western Australia before, but this time they’re headed to Broome and Kununurra, both in the northern part of the state.
